Fantastic Race Sydney is a totally unique experience. Equal parts interactive clue-based adventure game, live-action mystery novel, intellectual obstacle course, and self-guided tour of Sydney, giving visitors and locals the chance to see the Harbour City like the style of reality show “Amazing Race”.
Join us for an afternoon full of surprises. You’ll need your wits, energy, and willingness to have fun as you race the clock and your competition in an attempt to be the first team to unlock the clues and cross the finish line to claim the gold medal and bragging rights.
Duration: 3-4 hours. This experience takes place around Sydney CBD. While we pride ourselves on taking guests off the beaten path, our Sydney race covers an area one can easily walk in one day; so you shouldn’t find yourself too far astray. You don’t need to be in tip-top physical shape to compete, but the race is mostly on foot; so you have to be prepared to do some walking (or running).
What You'll Get
Fantastic Race Sydney is immersive, challenging, and completely addictive. It’s a competition where teams receive the first of a series of clues that leads them to a second location where they’ll receive a second clue and so on. These clues are tricky, sometimes very tricky. Often you won’t even know what they are; the trick may be in actually finding the clue.
Sounds complicated - it's not! First and foremost, Fantastic Race Sydney is FUN. Yes, it’s a race; you will do some outside-the-box problem solving and running around. But that is all secondary to the experience. You’ll meet some great people, you won’t be physically or mentally overwhelmed, and you will enjoy a terrific day.
We do not have any restrictions. BUT, children under 8, the elderly and those with limited mobility may find it too challenging. The course is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs as there are stairs and participants may choose to use public transport.
We meet just outside Central Train Station. Once at Central Station, look for Platform 1 (regional trains). Near this platform is a sign “Exit 1 Forecourt” (the Pitt Street end of Central Station). Take this exit, turn right and the Fantastic Race Sydney host will be down about 20-30 meters on the left (by the taxis). Call 0477 50 88 41 if you are lost or running late.
Briefing starts at 10:30 AM (arrive 10-15 minutes earlier for registration). We have a 5 minute grace period. If teams arrive late they will have to wait for the briefing again.
All sales final. However, if a guest is unable to honor their reservation, they may be able to reschedule at management’s discretion. In the unlikely event that we cancel due to weather or any other reason, we will issue a full refund.
Teams comprising of 2-10 players. We will happily place individuals on teams. Many lasting friendships have come from players assigned to teams.
